|Title:||Inclusive search for highly boosted Higgs bosons decaying to bottom quark-antiquark pairs in proton-proton collisions at ?s = 13 TeV||Authors:||CMS Collaboration
|Keywords:||Hadron-Hadron scattering (experiments)
|Issue Date:||2020||Publisher:||Springer Verlag||Abstract:||A search for standard model Higgs bosons (H) produced with transverse momentum (pT) greater than 450 GeV and decaying to bottom quark-antiquark pairs (b b ¯) is performed using proton-proton collision data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC at s = 13 TeV. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb?1. The search is inclusive in the Higgs boson production mode. Highly Lorentz-boosted Higgs bosons decaying to b b ¯ are reconstructed as single large-radius jets, and are identified using jet substructure and a dedicated b tagging technique based on a deep neural network. The method is validated with Z ?b b ¯ decays. For a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV, an excess of events above the background assuming no Higgs boson production is observed with a local significance of 2.5 standard deviations (?), while the expectation is 0.7. The corresponding signal strength and local significance with respect to the standard model expectation are ?H = 3.7 ± 1.2(stat)?0.7+0.8(syst)?0.5+0.8(theo) and 1.9 ?. Additionally, an unfolded differential cross section as a function of Higgs boson pT for the gluon fusion production mode is presented, assuming the other production modes occur at the expected rates.
